There’s no better feeling than watching a well-executed pilot. It’s invigorating knowing that there’s a new show with endless possibilities — like there’s a vast world just waiting to be explored. I came away with this feeling after watching the premiere episode for Amazon’s latest science-fiction project, “Oasis.” The pilot dazzles with its distinct, compelling storyline and an accompanying soundtrack that perfectly matches the dark tone of the series.
Over the past half-decade, superheroes have come to dominate Hollywood. With ten superhero films released from 2015 to 2016, and another 25 slated for release through 2020, there doesn’t appear to be an end in sight for comic-book franchises Marvel and CAPCOM. The latest entry into this superhero universe comes in the form of Netflix’s “Iron Fist,” a television adaptation of the comic-book series of the same name.
